emacs keybindings in firefox

Lots of updates coming, but a quick tidbit...

Today I was saying to myself for the 100th time, "Man, I wish I had emacs keybinding in browser text fields!" I wondered how hard it would be to write a Greasemonkey user script to do it, so I started searching to see if anyone beat me to the idea. Turns out, on Linux, it's supported natively (sort-of) by GTK, and if you're on other platforms, it's possible by hacking around with some mozilla XML files.

See:
snarfed.org: emacs keybindings in firefox
MozillaZine: Emacs Keybindings

I still think I might be able to write a Greasemonkey user script that would better do what I want, but for now, this will do.

Oh, and if you don't know what emacs is, sorry for boring you.

Actually, XKeymaps on windows seems to work pretty well, and is very configurable...
